This Rosa, aged in Napa Valley Cabernet wine casks pours out a beautiful millennial pink, perplexing the mind of this agave enthusiast. Alluring bitter, floral notes of hibiscus and rose petals with a distinct orange zest citrus note wafted from the glass, mixed with that familiar and comforting smell of sweet, cooked agave. Surprisingly, I didn’t get anything that would immediately bring wine to mind on the palate save the same floral notes that came off the nose and a tannic type of texture. This is most likely due to the short time it spends in the barrel, anywhere from two weeks to a month. The finish was lighthearted and fun with a light sweetness and tart lemon flavor that consciously or unconsciously made me think of nothing but pink lemonade.
